Brotknoedel (Bread Dumplings) Recipe

Step 1

Soak the rolls in lukewarm milk for 1/2 hour. Add the remainder of the ingredients and mix well. If mixture is too wet, add some breadcrumbs. Shape into dumplings. Carefully put dumplings into barely salted, simmering water and cook for 25 minutes. Serve as accompaniment to sauces, mushrooms, or in soups.

Serves 4.
